The Hauser Global Scholars Program, a part of the Hauser Global Law School Program, offers generous financial support to a limited number of outstanding foreign students for one year of study at New York University School of Law enrolled in the course leading to the LLM degree.
In addition to pursuing their degree program, Hauser Global Scholars participate in a specially developed seminar and in other programs and events throughout the year.
Each year a distinguished International Committee selects 10-14 of the finest students from countries across the world.
These select individuals are invited to join the NYU School of Law community (either as LL.M. candidates or as Research Scholars) and to share their perspectives and experiences from their own legal systems with the rest of the Law School academic community.
The Hauser Scholars are fully funded throughout the year of their studies at NYU School of Law and are integrated intellectually and socially in the events of the Hauser Global Law School Program and NYU School of Law.
Hauser Global Scholars are selected by an international committee chaired by the President of the International Court of Justice.
They are chosen on the basis of their intellectual and leadership ability and their capacity to participate productively in a global community of scholars and practitioners.
Each Hauser Global Scholar receives full tuition and reasonable living expenses, including rent and the cost of textbooks and other study materials.
Hauser Global Scholar candidates must be graduates of a law school outside of the United States.
Overall, both the LLM Hauser Scholars and the Hauser Research Scholars programs cultivate the interaction of ideas stemming from different legal systems that is at the core of the Hauser Program.
